Dallas-based TopGolf will host a huge grand opening event for its newest location in The Colony on Nov. 18. The event is by invitation only, but don't worry, we will be there to get some pictures for you! The 65,000-square-foot, three-level TopGolf location in The Colony is the company's 10th location and the third (and largest) in DFW to go along with the Dallas locale on Park Lane east of 75 and the very popular spot in Allen.
The list of celebrities confirmed to attend the party reads like a 'Who's Who" for DFW sports fans including Dallas Cowboys legendary Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman, Lance Armstrong, current Cowboys players Tony Romo, Jason Witten and DeMarcus Ware, Dallas Stars players Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin, Texas Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler, DFW-area PGA TOUR players Hunter Mahan and Colt Knost, and former Cowboys and Houston Texans linebacker Bradie James. Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings is also confirmed to be in attendance.
"We plan to celebrate the opening of our 10th facility in a big way," TopGolf CEO Tom Leverton said. "This is an exciting milestone for our company and it's one that happens to come at a time when we are closely approaching our 10-million visitor mark. The people of TopGolf are energized and eager to open the doors to The Colony community."
For those who have not been to TopGolf, it is an entertainment complex combining hitting golf balls and hanging out with friends. There are climate-controlled hitting bays complete with flat-screen TVs on multiple levels and plenty of targets for golfers to aim for and acquire points based on where their micro-chipped golf ball lands.
The latest TopGolf held its ribbon-cutting ceremony on Nov. 4 and has been in a soft-opening phase in the days leading up to the grand opening celebration. Prior to the ribbon-cutting, they held a 'Twilight at TopGolf' event partnering with Red Bull to give people the opportunity to win free TopGolf for a year.
